Giants add Johnny Cueto to rotation


The top end of the San Francisco Giants rotation got stronger on Monday when the team signed Johnny Cueto to a six year deal.

According to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, the deal is worth a total of $130 million and includes an opt-out clause for Cueto after the 2017 season. The Giants also have an option for a seventh year of Cueto.

Over his eight year career Cueto owns a 96-70 record to go with a 3.30 ERA. As important he has a 2.87 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP dating back to the start of the 2010 season.  In his lone World Series start he showcased himself well tossing a complete game two hitter against the New York Mets while allowing just a lone run.

With Cueto and Jeff Samardzija joining the Giants who already had Madison Bumgardner the NL West is going to be harder to score runs than last season.
